smat, 20 Jun 2010I have both the Wave and the Omnia HD and I would say the browsing experience on the Omnia HD ... morewhat?
I have also Omnia HD and Wave!
Wave is speeder overall than omnia HD!
Browser from Omnia HD support flash, what are you talk about???
I have last HX v5 firmware on omnia HD and with Turbo HD mode is very slow than Wave!
I use OPERA, yes, it's fast, but not enough like Wave browser!
Iffy, 20 Jun 2010Could someone tell me what the web browser is like compared to other phones such as iphone or ... moreI have both the Wave and the Omnia HD and I would say the browsing experience on the Omnia HD with the latest firmware is slightly better than the Wave due to the bigger screen. But the Wave does support flash and Omnia HD doesn't so you really appreciate this when browsing the web. To be honest there is nothing really lacking with the browser itself its just that if you are used to using a phone with a larger screen it might take you a while to get used to the Wave's one. All in all the Wave's browser does the job well as its pretty fast and stable.
Iffy, 20 Jun 2010Could someone tell me what the web browser is like compared to other phones such as iphone or ... moreit's THE BEST browser overall for phone!
support flash and speed is better than any iphone!
Could someone tell me what the web browser is like compared to other phones such as iphone or omnia hd. I really want this phone but need a good web browser on my phones. Thanks

I dropped my wave yesterday on to a concrete floor and luckily it landed on the plastic bottom. It survived without a mark but it was a couple of seconds of pure panic. If it had a metal bottom I don't think my wave would have survived in one piece. build quality top notch as far as I'm concerned.
Chris, 19 Jun 2010uuhhmm.. i've tried to find a review of Samsung Wave at www.mobile-review.com but did not find... moreYes, the review is in russian, its there, but I was talking about forum discussions, not the actual review. I read a ton of forums so I am not sure where I read it, if I find the exact post I will come back and post it here.
for the filipinos their in phil.if youre really craving for this wave we actually have it here in uae so if you do have a relatives leaving or working here in uae why dont you ask them to buy it from here that's about more or less 23k in peso.
For the Route 66 navigation, anyone knows if I can get my actual location without setting my device to the online mode?
cooza, 19 Jun 2010try it with another memory card if possible.try it with (if its possible) a 2gb or 4gb or 8gb ... morei tried it with an 2GB memory card and its the same. I switched off the auto lock option and the problem is gone, but I will anyway take it back to the store and present the problem there. Thank you.

If the phone is dropped you wonder whether this bottom part will survive however I would recommend getting a case which would prevent any potential accidents. You could have a similar issue with many phones so nothing is perfect. Concerning the Bada OS I have absolutely no issues with it, its rock solid and on my unit at least I've never experienced a crash or any bugs at all and its the smoothest OS I have ever used on a phone.Hope this answers your question.

The very first time I heard that from you. I'm you're from other brand.
This is 1G... moreI didnt say I think that, I dont have the Wave, I dont know. I read that in the forums of mobile-review.com, howard forums, some other sites as well.
I know its made of a good material and has a fast cpu, but that still doesnt mean it isnt buggy or built well.
It was an honest question, and a question I asked to hear from you guys if there have been any issues.
I am In Malaysia now ,Samsung wave s8500 is here in 1st time . it is amazing very clear very fast i think it is the best , it is kicking in iphone out , because of the price is half of iphone . i will buy one afternoon Thank you
Can we sync phone contacts and Calendar entries from GMAIL, ORKUT, FACEBOOK & OUTLOOK?
Anonymous, 19 Jun 2010i think you have to email samsung phils. about this.. probably the basic your talking about... moreThanks, but Chris is right, it's actually the Social Hub only. I hope. Anyway, I don't know anything about the 8 gb version. Been trying to ask about it but no one can give me a concrete answer. Most probably it's just part of Samsung's blueprint of the Wave. In the end, they just decided to scrap the 8gb version and push through with the 2 gb only. Well, as long as the phone can handle a 32 gb, then we wouldn't have a problem. We just need to keep our fingers crossed that whatever Wave unit will arrive here, it will be the best standalone phone we expected after all the wait.
Chris, 19 Jun 2010i don't know any premium and basic versions of wave.. dapat na clarify mo siya maigi sa sales ... moreYeah, I guess that's only the Social Hub she's talking about. Well, we really just need to wait for it to arrive. Whew, this is really such a painstaking wait....
